Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: ISC DHCP: dhcpd Denial of Service (GLSA 200908-08)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: August 18, 2009
Bug(s): #275231
ID: 200908-08

Synopsis


dhcpd as included in the ISC DHCP implementation does not properly handle
special conditions, leading to a Denial of Service.


Background


ISC DHCP is the reference implementation of the Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol as specified in RFC 2131.


Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/dhcp
Vulnerable: < 3.1.2_p1
Unaffected: >= 3.1.2_p1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Christoph Biedl discovered that dhcpd does not properly handle certain
DHCP requests when configured both using "dhcp-client-identifier" and
"hardware ethernet".


Impact


A remote attacker might send a specially crafted request to dhcpd,
possibly resulting in a Denial of Service (daemon crash).


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All ISC DHCP users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/dhcp-3.1.2_p1"


References

CVE-2009-1892
